I'm not PG yet, but we're planning a HB for our second LO, whom we hope to conceive very soon!

I had a very traumatizing induced labour/CS, which I am hoping to avoid at all costs this time around. I had hoped that having a MW the first time around would have prevented alot of what happened, but I had all control taken away from myself and my body, even before I went into the hospital.

I am currently looking for a new MW whom is willing to do a HB VBAC. It's not easy in this area, but the search is on! I have a friend who is a trained MW, but is not currently practicing, and she is helping me alot with what to look for and how to go about it. She has even offered to be there for an "unassisted" childbirth, but she is currently going through IVF procedures, so I'm hoping that she won't be able to!

Me: Autoimmune (Hashimotos and Fibromyalgia), vitamin D and calcium deficiency. Treated with Synthroid, supplements, TCM and acupuncture.

DH: Severe MFI (low counts, low motility, poor morphology and high antibodies), likely caused by poor liver function. Treated with Clomid to increase total counts.

DD: Conceived after 1 year of TTC with progesterone to correct LPD (likely caused by undiagnosed thyroid dysfunction). Born Aug 2009 via c/s after an induction due to pre-e and HELLP.

TTC #2 since Oct10 with an early loss in Aug 2011. Post-wash counts are too low for IUI to be successful, so moving on to IVF/ICSI in May 2014!

IVF/ICSI #1 (May 2014): Estrogen priming and antagonist protocol, including acupuncture and prayer!

28/05/14 - 18 eggs retrieved, 14 mature
29/05/14 - 13 fertilized!!! All are looking great still on day 3, so we're going to blast!

03/06/14 - All embryos have arrested. None to freeze

Thanks guys

I think that this time around should be alot better. Even if I were to be induced again, (Last time was for severe pre-e and HELLP, so it really couldn't be avoided) I would be prepared and KNOW what to expect. DH is pro-HB, so I know he is going to be my best advocate, even if the MW wasn't around.

I know I'll have a ton of questions for you guys in the times ahead, and hopefully I'll be able to add something to the mix too!
